Police launch appeal over Rita Ora burglary

Police in Britain have launched a fresh appeal for information over a burglary at Rita Ora's London home last month (Nov15).

Officers have released CCTV images of two men they are looking to question in connection with the break-in at the Hot Right Now singer's mansion in the north of the British capital.


Thieves are alleged to have taken personal items worth thousands from Rita's six-bedroom $2 million home.


According to police investigators, the suspects made several trips to the property in the early hours of 28 November (15) before fleeing after the occupants were woken.


Detective Constable Karen Beck, who is leading the investigation says, "Burglary is a very intrusive crime, and all the more distressing when an occupant actually comes face to face with the burglar.


"We are appealing for anyone who recognises the men in the two images to contact us. We are also keen to hear from anyone who may have seen these men in or around the area, before or after the burglary."


Anyone with any information on the burglary at Rita's home is urged to contact the local police force in Brent, London.


Less than a week after the raid, Rita's fellow judge on U.K. TV talent show The X Factor Simon Cowell was also the victim of a terrifying home invasion and theft.
